19 Then King Tiglath-pileser a of Assyria invaded the land. But Menahem paid him thirty-seven tons b of silver to gain his support in tightening his grip on royal power. 20 Menahem extorted the money from the rich of Israel, demanding that each of them pay twenty ounces c of silver in the form of a special tax. So the king of Assyria turned from attacking Israel and did not stay in the land.
